    So now, based on the Trump doctrine...no nation should aid another group or nation unless they are angelic in their actions towards anyone else....So

    Germany, Japan, South Korea, Israel, France, Britain, Afghanistan, Iraq...

    We are canceling all treaties and aid programs. We won't expect your help in any future conflict....because God knows, we're no angels either.

    You're right... we should keep our troops there until more are murdered. Good idea.

    How many of our troops have been killed in that area in the last year?

    Trump had a phone call with his buddy the dictator in Turkey and decided without consulting anyone in the military or state department that he'd bail out....

    My bet is that the American soldiers who fought alongside of the Kurds are pissed off at this betrayal. It is so completely dishonorable that I'm surprised that even you would defend it.

    So funny to see you people braying for more dishonest and dishonorable treatment of our allies. There was no fighting going on in that area of Syria. We have not had a casualty there since last January. The presence of our troops there insured that Turkey would not attack the Kurds.

    I can well imagine Trump wanting to withdraw our troops from West Berlin in 1949 and you, in your overriding desire to be loyal to the party, would regurgitate the same crap...
    After all, were the Germans very helpful to our brave troops at Normandy? :rolleyes:

    1) Five Americans, three troops this year.
    2) Do you have proof Trump made a decision without consulting anybody?
    3) Does a president have to consult with anyone before making a decision?
    4) Your guess is irrelevant.
    5) Bringing our troops home insures ZERO are killed.

    I don't see the big deal. The troops were supposed to be there for a month. We went ahead and kept them there for years.

    Four Americans were killed on January 16th in Manbij, Syria. Is that the reason we let hundreds of Kurds get killed by the Turks?

    Do you have evidence that Trump consulted with his military leadership prior to ordering this withdrawal? If you do it would fly in the face of practically every other decision he has made. Why do you think his appointees are constantly quitting?

    My guess is as relevant as yours...more so since your oxygen supply is clearly cut off by Trump's sphincter.

    Bringing our troops home insures thousands of Kurds killed.

    The PKK has in March 2016 vowed to overthrow the Turkish "fascist AKP" government of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, through the 'Peoples' United Revolutionary Movement'.[16] For different reasons, the PKK has been designated as "terrorist" organization by Turkey,[17] the United States, 28 European countries, and Japan.[18]

    You are supporting terrorists again...How expected.

    Got it, so troops in harm's way and more war is what you want. As I said, I knew it all along. I can't wait to see Elizabeth Warren trying to sell that one during her campaign. LOL!

    So will Trump be evacuating our troops from South Korea any time soon?

    There was no fighting going on until Trump pulled our guys out of northern Syria...now hundreds of Kurds are being killed. Trump betrayed them. How soon do you think anyone will sign up to fight in a conflict on our side in the future?

    So you would like to have gone to war in Syria and Ukraine and think I'm a war monger?

    Obama threatened war in Syria and Assad gave up the all WMDs that we knew about. The destruction of those weapons was well documented.

    Obama's sanctions against Russia because of Crimea and Ukraine are still in effect, as are those enacted by the EU. Russia's economy and Putin's circle of cronies all took a hit. Should we have committed troops? I don't think so. It seems you do.

    I sure hope so. It'll be even more fun to see you braying for TWO wars instead of just one.

    I don't care. Our troops are being taken out of harm's way, and you and your fellow Democrats oppose that. You oppose our troops being taken out of harm's way. You want our troops left in a dangerous foreign place where many thousands of their fellow soldiers have been killed, rather than brought home. Because Orange Man bad. That's all anyone needs to know.

    How many Turkish soldiers were landed at Normandy? Seems that is Trump's excuse for double crossing the Kurds...

    How many Turkish troops helped in the fight against ISIS? The Kurds lost 11,000.
